Annual Luau Fundraiser Event

The Greater Rockwall Youth Symphony is putting on their annual Luau fundraising event this Friday night June 30th 2023 at The Center in Rockwall. GRYS, as they are commonly called, is comprised of students in Northeast Texas from surrounding cities such as Rockwall, Heath, Forney, Garland, Fate, Royse City, Terrell, Rowlett, Sunnyvale, Mesquite, Greenville, and many more. The ages for GRYS range from 6 years old through 18, and their vision is to connect kids with the community through music. With the many students and families participating from Forney, this is a great opportunity to support local kids with interests in fine arts! Tickets are only $50 each and raffle tickets are $5 each. The event will be from 7pm to 10pm and will include amazing performances by these students.

From their website,

The Greater Rockwall Youth Symphony (GRYS) was founded in 2022. Our goal is to provide a musical outlet for students while serving our community. We will bring the concert hall to you! We recognize that classical music is needed in our community to keep this art form alive.

Student performances take place throughout our community at many local events. We offer performances for everyone at any age. GRYS students perform at local nursing homes, assisted living facilities, memory centers, and senior centers. We also honor and serve our veterans through music.

GRYS supports local nonprofit organizations and have performed for Meals on Wheels Senior Services, Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Texas, Children’s Advocacy Center, the Rockwall Art League, Rockwall Women’s League, the Rotary Club, Senior Services Alliance, Professional Women’s Alliance, Soroptimist, and the Chamber of Commerce.
